New mostly adds comments about a surprise: the idea that length-adaptive ShiversSort eeks out better results than powersort appears nearly unique to the specific "0.80" cutoff used in the random-case generation code to pick between two uniform distributions. Change that cutoff, and powersort almost always does better.

So powersort remains the best known overall, although shivers4 remains competitive with it.
